OGC Nice President Jean Pierre Rivère has confirmed that his player Hatem Ben Arfa is in discussions with FC Barcelona, but that nothing is agreed yet.
In an interview with France 3, Rivère had the following to say on the matter:
“I would be very happy for him and for Nice if this move comes off. You do not rejected Barcelona but it is up to him to decide. If I was a player and Barcelona was offered to me, I would not ask questions, I would go! But it is not yet done according to what I am told.”
